Youkillis rehabs tonight in Pawtucket
The past few days have been very eventful while visiting the Pawtucket clubhouse.
Yesterday, the Boston Red Sox had Daisuke Matsuzaka on hand to continue his rehab assignment with Pawtucket. “Dice-K” threw for about 20 minutes in left field on Sunday, two days after he pitched on the mound in what is presumed his final rehab start. The Red Sox have penciled him in to start Friday. We’ll have some of his thoughts on the air tonight, so join us on “Countdown to Bisons Baseball” at 6:35 p.m.
While talking with PawSox manager Ron Johnson he revealed that Kevin Youkillis (pictured) will play in the final two games of the Bisons’ series.
Youkillis is expected to DH tonight and play at first base Tuesday afternoon in the series finale.
Buffalo and Pawtucket meet on Monday at 7:05 p.m. and conclude their series on Tuesday at 12:05 p.m.
